Why does Pure Storage® quote 32K, not 4K IOPS?
The industry commonly markets 4K IOPS benchmark to make numbers look high, but real-world environments are dominated by IO sizes of 32K or larger. Pure Storage has optimized the FlashArray for the real-world. FlashArray adapts automatically to 512B- 32KB IO for superior performance, scalability, and data reduction.
15 – 120+ TBs in 3U
90 - 120 TBs in 3U
150 TBs in 5U
Up to 250+ TBs in 7U
Up to 400+ TBs in 11U
Displayed capacity is effective capacity, unless otherwise noted. Effective capacity assumes HA, RAID, and metadata overhead, GB-to-GiB conversion, and includes the benefit of data reduction with always-on & global inline deduplication, compression, deep reduction, and pattern removal. Average data reduction is calculated at 5-to-1. Some customers see data reduction in excess of 20-to-1. Effective capacity has no upper limit and will vary depending on workload.
Capacity is purchased and added in capacity packs of 10 x Flash Modules. Three options are available: 5TB, 10TB, and 20TB. Capacity packs can be mixed within an //m system.
//m20 can be expanded beyond the 3U base chassis with expansion shelves.
NV-RAM specifications are calculated per //m system
* //m20 can be expanded beyond the 3U base chassis with expansion shelves.
** Unloaded //m system without NV-RAM Modules, Flash Modules, or Blank Carriers
*** //m system with 2 x NV-RAM Modules, 10 x Flash Modules, 10 x Blank Carriers, and Bezel
**** //m system with 2 x NV-RAM Modules, 20 x Flash Modules, and Bezel
Host connectivity and ports are calculcated per HA system. The Pure Storage FlashArray serves IO from both active/active controllers
